HIGHLIGHTS | Treaty United without a win in five as they slump to Cobh loss.

The result leaves Tommy Barrett’s side eighth in the table, and five points off Bray, who occupy the final promotion playoff spot.

Treaty United failed to arrest their recent poor form on Friday night, as they slumped to yet another defeat in the League of Ireland First Division against Cobh Ramblers. Playing at the Markets Field, the Limerick outfit suffered their fifth home loss of the season, falling victim to a goal from young midfielder Liam Kervick with just ten minutes to play.

The result leaves Tommy Barrett’s side eighth in the table, and five points off Bray, who occupy the final promotion playoff spot. The Shannonsiders have had a torrid time of late, recording back to back 3-0 losses at home to Galway and Finn Harps, before travelling to Waterford to receive a 7-0 drumming.

Coming into this game, especially playing at home, Treaty will have wanted an improvement in their performance, and to some extent, they got that. The Limerick side were the better team on the night, but failed to convert any chances, and if you don’t score goals, you can’t win games. Management and fans alike will only be interested in results, and they are not coming with enough regularity.

The decisive moment of the night came in the 80th minute, as Kervick ran onto the end of a long-ball in behind the Treaty defence and finished excellently. The youngster had a lot to do before scoring, picking the ball up on the edge of the box, Kervick twisted and turned until a shooting opportunity arose. He finished coolly past United keeper Shane Hallahan off his right, as he grabbed his side all three points, and moved them into fourth in the table.

Barrett’s men have no time to be feeling sorry for themselves, and the manager will have to ready his players to go again this Friday, as they travel to third placed Athlone. The game kicks off at 7:45pm in the Athlone Town Stadium.
